. >> reporter: house speaker john boehner. >> if the president was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> reporter: trying to capi capitalize on the visit by governors. in california, 9,600 low-income students could lose financial aid. in texas, nearly $68 million for teachers and schools could be slashed. and in virginia, 90,000 civilian defense department employees could be furloughed. the president punctuated the urgency. >> all of us are concerned about our politics. both in our own parties as well as the other parties. but at some point, we've got to do some governing. >> reporter: still, there have been no negotiations. no progress all weekend. not even a phone call between the president and republicans in days. so why the lack of movement, especially if the cuts are so drastic? >> what you're seeing right now is solely that political positioning, trying to put themselves in a place where they are the ones dictating the terms of the eventual agreement to their political rivals. >> reporter: but the anticipation is already breeding anxiety. >> th

and women as campaign props, if the president was serious he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we shouldn't have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> good afternoon. we heard the president say last week that he was going to be forced because of the sequestration to let criminals loose on the street if he didn't get another tax hike. today we're hearing discussions from the secretary of homeland security that somehow we're going to have to sacrifice homeland security efforts in keeping our country safe if we don't get another tax hike. this is a false choice. and the president has been engaging in this rhetoric of a false choice for weeks now. as the speaker just indicated, we in the house have acted. there is a smaller and better way to go about trying to achieve the reductions in spending so we can get a control over the spending. and in the house we even included measures that the president has proposed in his own budget. but yet the president won't support even his own measures unless there's a tax increas

eternal. the president can sit down with harry reid tonight and work with senate democrats who have the majority in the senate to move a bill. it's time for them to act. i've made this clear for months now. and yet we've seen nothing. >> now, he wants them, senator, to move legislation that passed in the last congress. the last congress is irrelevant right now. you need new legislation in order to pass a bill. >> wolf, what's not irrelevant is last congress we had the tax increase. so now it's spending cut time. the president doesn't want to to the spending cut. we had the tax increase -- >> right now, to avert this fiscal crisis we have right now, these forced spending cuts, you need a new bill. you can't use a bill from the old congress. >> the president -- you know what, and i think scott walker, the wisconsin governor, said it, let the president come out and say, here's where we're going to cut $85 billion in spending. the bottom line is the president doesn't want to cut spending. it's $16 trillion in debt. he doesn't want to cut spending. >> he does want to cut spending but he

somewhat reluctant to go on with this. but eventually they did. also, senator harry reid.this is a terrible idea according to woodward's proposal. >> last question very quickly come in the senate is talking about competing plans aimed at averting budget cuts. >> leader of senate debate with too those, one on the democratic plan and one on the republican plan, both of which require 60 votes in this complicated procedurally in the upper chamber, but 60 votes for this to pass is very unclear whether the democratic plan will be able to get those 60 of us, even though the democrats are in the majority of the chamber. it puts a lot of the red state democrats for reelection in 2014 on the hot seat. we have to see how that plays out. >> jonathan strong, read him a "roll call." thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> be no foreign countries and companies so i parked her per sequence. we are also seeking the ability to sabotage our power grid. our financial institutions, air traffic control systems. we cannot put back years from now and wonder why they did not seem in the face of real threats to secu

it to harry reid. if nothing was done, this would happen. i do not like the defense cuts, but if they cannot cut 2.5% of $3.6 trillion, where is this country going? this is ridiculous. i have had to cut my budget 40% , and they cannot cut 2.5%? host: that was mike in houston. roy is an oak park, michigan. caller: good morning. i am a first-time caller to c- span and a longtime viewer. thank you for taking my call. my comment is to the republicans who are seniors, my brothers and sisters, calling into c-span complaining about the national debt and how we are passing this debt onto our grandkids, and i do not want to be too devastating by saying this, but the seniors should just die off. they have taken away from the medicare and medicaid system far more than what they contributed by the mere fact that they are living longer, having triple bypass operations, heart pacemaker operations, it and knee replacement surgery, and the cost for numerous prescription drugs. if they would just die off, their insurance policies that are being billed to their offspring, they can take that insurance policy,
